    I plugged "swag" into a name generator and got The Swag Dagger as my first result, so you should totally just go with that.

    hahahaha this is awesome

    [​IMG][​IMG]raire ou Jouissance (in keeping with the TOJ acronym)

    French for "Reckless or Enjoyment". Jouissance also means pleasure.

    This is the vibe i get from TOJ; a company that resulted from taking risks when Drew went to Korea with an idea of a Taco truck, which subsequently led to new ideas for the TOJ project to evolve. This process all started by him taking a dive into unknown waters, and making something wonderful happen. His endeavors has led us to what TOJ is now, a company that puts out quality MTM clothing for the pleasure of people that purchase them, as well as the viewing eyes of everyone around them.

    Joseph Stalin once said, "You cannot make a revolution with silk gloves."

    In order to produce something to one's ideal, a level of risk, courage, and vision must be present. Only then can we experience the pleasures our aspirations has to offer.

    Is SZ doing an article on ToJ? --- Before I submit a name, would like to know: should we avoid making any reference to the old ToJ name (e.g. using those letters in a new name). It's not a great name, but damn the logo is good [​IMG]

    Haha, never have I written or spoken the words swagger, swag, steeze, etc., but I thought it was kind of a funny tongue in cheek homage to Drew's over the top statements when he gets excited about his new designs:
    trust; would I not swag myself out, if swagging myself out?
    kawaii mega swag juice
    by more swag juice I mean so fucking swaggy and straight from the centre and yeah I just put that r before the e swag juice central
    'Eat, Swag, Love' tour that will bring more swag juice
    balls 1000X bigger
    Also, bored in the office on a Friday afternoon, and was thinking hard about what I want my BCDR to look like, so I decided to put my extremely limited Photoshop skills to use and see what I could get. I know unicornprincessx already did one but the diamond quilting wasn't to the scale Drew mentioned it was, and didn't look as beefy as I imagine it would be.

    Too lazy/unskilled to make the quilting follow the curvature more than what I already did, and it's time to head home anyways. I'm torn, but I'm leaning towards the regular quilt now.

    Damn I need a suede bomber. Choosing the color is too time consuming.

    Honestly I'm surprised the word 'swag' still gets much play, especially on a forum like this since Hip Hop basically killed it in the last recent years.
